Hi Guys,
I know this might sound like cheating or hacking, but is there maybe a resource or a site where I can download code? The thing is that I have all the knowledge of using code and small little programs but have no idea now to put it all together into a big system. If I could look at some code of a big system just to get an idea of how it all fits together. For Example a logon screen.
Is there such a site?
Thanks alot.

Check out the Java Petstore. It's a Java Demo created by Sun that basically has an example of every kind of technology you can think of (including a log-in module). It comes complete with Source Code.
You can also check out Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies, It covers a lot of the design patterns used in the Petstore app.

I would hardly consider looking at previously written code (hopefully well-written) in order to learn something "cheating".
